It is always helpful to exfoliate and take a mild anti-inflammatory medication (such as Ibuprofen) before a wax service. This will help to reduce skin redness and swelling – and will help to keep you calm if you get nervous easily. Also avoid caffeine and alcohol 24 hours before your waxing service. They are stimulants and they only increase your blood flow and make the experience more nerve wrecking.
Our licensed Estheticians are very experienced, friendly and professional. They will guide you through the process and make you feel comfortable and happy.
Ideally, the hair needs to be at least a 1/4 inch to a 1/2 inch long in order to be waxed. The longer the hair, easier the pull and better the results. This is usually about 3 weeks of hair growth after shaving. There is no need to trim or buzz before your waxing appointment.
The Bikini Wax is hair removed that would be showing outside of your bathing suit or underwear. We give you full coverage disposable bikini underwear during your Bikini Wax appointment.
The Brazilian Wax is removing all the hair from underneath the belly button continuing to the backside. Some people choose to leave a strip or a triangle on the top. In order for you to receive a Brazilian Wax, you’ll need to be naked from the waist down. It may seem uncomfortable, but we are very experienced and have waxed many women so you can feel secure with our discretion and professionalism.
After just one wax session your regrowth will be much thinner, finer and softer. That is one of the major benefits. With continued waxing, you may even experience significant reduction in regrowth. Which makes it easier and less painful if you keep up with regular waxes. Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours before your wax. Take an mild anti-inflammatory medication (such as Ibuprofen) 1 hour prior to your appointment. Most women find waxing to be very tolerable.
You should not tan within 48hours of before or after you wax. Waxing has an exfoliating effect on the skin and will make you temporarily more susceptible to sunburn and sensitivity. If you would still like to tan, we would advise covering the area completely with a towel. Wait to come in after a spray tan, or wax will exfoliate the tan right off. Spray tan after your waxing appointment.
You can still get waxed while you are on your period. We just suggest that you wear a tampon. You are a lot more sensitive during this time. With the extra blood flow in the area, sometimes our clients may even bruise.
The skin may stay red and tender anywhere from 1 to 24 hours depending on your skin's sensitivity. Some people will experience very little redness and irritation.
EXFOLIATE!!! We recommend all individuals who receive body waxing to exfoliate on a daily basis. We will discuss these issues during your waxing appointment.
Brazilian Waxing during your pregnancy is perfectly normal and not harmful to you or your baby at all. Your skin may be a little more sensitive during this special time. We suggest asking your Doctor for any other concerns.
Depending on your rate of hair growth, the average you should be hair-free for at least 2 to 3 weeks. Most people do well on a waxing schedule of every 4-6 weeks.
Brazilian or Bikini Waxes will take no longer than 40 minutes. Full Legs, Backs and Chest should take at the most 45 minutes. On average a Full Body wax will take 1 ½ hours.
